america. ♪ "god bless the usa". >> ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. thank you very much. [applause] >> glad to have this great audience here and welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. i bet there is something you don't know about lance armstrong and me. we were together on a panel to talk about preventative health care x. maybe more iortantly, we ran the new york mara thon together in 2006. he finished in under three hours, and i finished in under three days. well, my performance was not that bad and i did finish the 26.2 mile adventure, but the only time i saw lance was in the start. we were lined up near each other and i saw his rear end fade in the distance in front
12:03am
of me. i kind of feel better about the whole thing. it took me five hours, it is evident i was not using performance enhancing drugs and he did. but this week, he's having to apologize and beg for forgiveness for the athletic accomplishments that turned out to be cheating. 7 tour de france titles go gone and millions of income gone . reputation of being an inspiring story of beating cancer to achieve unparalleled success gone. maybe in the new york mara thon all i saw was his rear and after all of these years, i still have mine. you see his reputation went from hero to zero super superstar to fallen star and it was bad he cheat worse that he lied about it and it was worse that he fought viciously
12:04am
in court all of those who told the truth. by his cheer power and unlimited funs to hire lawyers he destroyed the lifes and careers of many who were once his friends. his was a tale of triumph and now a tragedy of someone who thought he was too big to fail and too big to follow the rules and to be accountable. it is the same with tiger wood and john edward and eliot spitwrers and sports and entertainment and big business and politics. noven us are truly rightous but there is something off putting about those self rightous while being unrightous and that's what makes the lance armstrong failure so disgusting. he didn't just cheat. we could have forgiven him for that. but he built good works for charity all on a lie. when i hear people say our
12:05am
kids need to do better in math, science and history and the arts, i don't disagree with that. i hope that we would add that approximate if we teach our children to be smart and not honest and if their minds are filled with information and souls lack integrit yehonor . succeed in being great athletes and self centered self serving jerks it is not that our kids failed us. it is that we failed them. [applause] little reminder tomorrow, tomorrow is a day to pray in america. a day to pray for our country and leaders and i hope you will join your fellow americans for a day to pray. details at adaytopray.com. >> on wednesday president obama flank would by biden
12:06am
defended his action to go for a 23 step plan on gun without congress. >> it is based on the work of joe's task force . in the days ahead, i intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them a reality. because while there is no law or set of laws that prevent every senseless act of violence completely, no piece of legislation that will prevent every tragedy, every act of evil, if there is even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there is even one life that can be saved, we have an obligation to try. >> texas congressman steve stockman made news. he said he would take any means necessary to stop the
12:07am
president from bypassing congress even arcticles for impeoplement. congressman stockman. you would do whatever it takes. what kinds of actions you take to reverse the executive orders. >> mike, right now what we did, we contacted dr. paul, a senator in up in the senate and we are co-sponsoring legislation to and perform stopping the bills which are executive orders that act like bills and in order to make sure he doesn't overstep his authority. we are introducing legislation as we speak. we'll draft and introduce it in the coming weeks. >> the word impeachment came up. is that a threat? >> we have a lot of option and tools and as a congressman you can impeach somebody. it is not the first step but a step to leave open.
12:08am
>> we'll go to the congressman out in arizona, congressman, great to see you again and i add, you were in congress along with congressman stockman back in the '90s and served out terps you said you would serve and took a hiatus and now you are back. why did you come back to congress . most people say that is enough of that stuff. why? >> i sat on the sidelines for 12 yearrs, and i realized that if i wasn't willing to put up or shut up, then i couldn't look myself in the mirror for the rest of my life. there are so many important things at stake. the future of the children and familis and country . we a budget right now that is so far out of the balance if we don't get it solved, a lot of the hard working taxpayers will be badly hurt. i will not stand by and watch that happen. i decided to get back in the
12:09am
fight. >> congressman stockman. you left congress and you have come back, why? >> matt are in the same class of '94 and first time we took over the house. i watch the house and get angry with what you shoy. >> not the way i say it. >> no. you bring up great issues and matt and i are fighters and the way our country has gone in four years is bad. people don't realize this president is digging a hole so deep, we can't dig out. the amount of money may take all of the money to buy our bonds it mathematically doesn't add up. >> i think when i look at the debt we are facing it is so much more than either of you guys faced 20 years ago in the congress . >> oh, yes. >> go ahead, matt. >> gov when i left congress we had a surplus and 1.9 trillion
12:10am
dollar budget and i thought that was bad. we started to pay down the debt first time in 40 years and that was a good thing. the budget hasn't been balanced in multiyears and the deficit is over a trillion dollars . every man, woman and child. i had my fifth grandchild and that baby was born with $50,000 worth of debt if we were to pay it off today. every man and woman and child has that worth of debt. that is uncon69able and we have to stop kicking the can down the road and we have to solve the problem and do whatever it takes to get us back on the fiscal path again. >> i want to talk about it now you come back and see a different thing. what is the biggest difference you are seeing coming back the second time? >> we passed a lot more rules on ourselves. we reduced our budget and exact opposite is happening to
12:11am
our government. it is gone crazy with regulation and restriction, but the part that is most alarmming is the amount of money that we are print one day will explode. we can't continue to print money. we have fancy names for it. it is quantitative easing and it is really printing money. wrim bay way has a trillion dollar note and you buy a loaf of bread everybody is happily singing . we will pick up the bill for the health care. new taxes kicked n and they went to the bar and restaurant had a great time and now they will get a check for the so-called health care. >> that is good bread for a trillion dollars. we will ask the congressman worked with bill clinton a
12:12am
democrat and now working with barack obama a democrat. go to my website mikehuckabee.com. tell me what you think on the leaf feed back . sign up for my facebook and follow me on twitter. you
12:13am
12:14am
>> we are back with the congressman. matt, back to you.
12:15am
you served with bill clinton 20 years and now with barack obama; tell me the difference. >> governor, i sat through a government shut down with president clinton and impeachment which i voted for and all kines of fights between us and the president and i never thought in my wildest dreams that i would say this, but after four years of barack obama i am nostalgic for bill clinon. >> i have heard a lot of the republicanns say who were in the congress at that time bill clinton understood the art of the governing, congressman stockman, your perspective. you have been there. >> he's treating us like a college professor in the classroom. he lectures and not engaging us . stands back and we submitting the term paper and he puts we don't want it . we guess at what he wants and he doesn't engage. when he was a state senator
12:16am
and senator, he did a vote in present . that's what we feel like we have no leadership in the white house. you look at john boehner who went with proposals and guessed at what we wanted. i wish we had clinton back, too. >> everybody loves clinton now, too. >> congressman, what did you do in dealing with a president that we will say is obstinate. >> i think the republicans have to draw a hard line in the sand and use whatever means that are possible. i think when he does unstugal things we have to call him on it . representative tockman showed he has the guts to stand up and be count i will, too. i will try to get the president that this document means something. this is the u.s. constitution.
12:17am
i implore him to go back and read arcticle one and two and talking about the powers of the congress and president. he believes that he can run things through fiat. he another thing comings. he will face the guys likeman and i and we'll draw lines and we'll go through another government shut down to help him understand we are serious about getting the crisis under control and paying as you go and paying like every business and american has to do, we'll do it. >> congressman, do you have to worry about the public perception of congress. the approval rating of congress is lower than cock roachhs . so what does that do when the media is on the president's side . he has a multimedia campaign and does that enter into how you approach challenging him. >> people are dying for back
12:18am
bone and standing up to the president and saying enough is enough. we are low because we are not doing what the people sent us there. stop the printing press and crazy spend people will respond . our numbers will go back up. remember those numbers include the democratic senate and not just us. >> and matt. >> governor could i interject. the father of the republican party abraham lincoln, do you believe if he poll tested amonghe american people and asked if you are willing to have a major battle in which brother kills brother and father kills son in order to free the slaves would you fight a fight for that. the poll would have come back in the united states about 80-20 no . i believe that leaders have a responsibility to lead on the moral authority and lead the country in the right direction and let the chips fall where they may. >> will the house come
12:19am
together? there is division about the republicans taking a hard line and negotiating compromise. congressman stockman. >> my good friend matt stated we came back from a gathering in williamsburg. i believe and matt believes we are willing to shut the government down. we'll not do the game of going back and forth to t white house and congress . not say anything. we'll stand up stop the none sense. >> do you feel that the house republicans will stick together on this? >> i believe just like we have in the past had to stand up with the difficult situations in this country and like i said the civil war and great depression and world war one and two and americans have what it takes and we have to just bed n congress if we want to earn a reputation better than cockroaches we
12:20am
better stop act being like cockroaches . great to you here and your perspective is an important one having been there before and being there now. god bless and best of luck to both of you. >> gun rights groups are not too thrilled with the gun control plan. they are turning out in droves to support gun appreciation day. katherine is in a gun range in virginia and find out what the turn out is like where she is.
12:21am
12:22am
12:23am
12:24am
gun rights group declared today as gun appreciation day to protest the gun a policy. we'll go to katherine who is down in a gun shop and range in virginia. >> it is always a pleasure to be with you. we are in clark brothers gun shop and range and just for setting the scene. we are 90 minutes in washington d.c.. you have weekend own owners who come out here. today, the parking lot is at capacit yethe range over my shoulder. there are tade waits to get on the range. some people want to show they believe in the sanctity of the second amendment and want to send a message to the president obama administration . basic terms for them gun appreciation day is very much appreciated. >> we have so much of the
12:25am
divisiveness from this particular administration. i just think that that is a group of people to try to figure out how can we make and reverse it and turn it around and make it look ugly. but it is i fabulous thing and the second amendment. >> it would have to be tougher enforcement and stronger evaluation to get a weapon. maybe if the shot gun age to be push to 21 . pistol and handguns pushed up farther that would be a good idea. >> the argument for the critics is that gun appreciation day shows tone deafness coming before martin luther king jr. day and in the wake of newtown, connecticut, governor. >> katherine, we'll talk about the increase of gun sales in recent weeks. i am hearing reports that it is extraordinary. >> yeah, i went in the gun shop to give i specific and accurate information and the gun shop told me they are
12:26am
basically sold out of everything. it is not just hunting weapons. it is assault weapons and handguns and it is small cal ber weapons and also small weapons that are conceal and carry weapons it is virtually everything across the board . they are looking at significant waits. a lot of people don't want to discuss the motivation and those who do, say they are coming in first time gun buyers and doing so because of the proposals that may restrict gun ownership in this country, governor. >> are there people there buying guns that normally don't? there is a good persage . the gun store owner said to me that people are reluctant. some admit to being first-time buyers. one conversation and that stuck with me. if you put the gun rights issue to one side.
12:27am
it was something bigger. he felt that the administration opening pan dora box and tinkering with basic american core rights and values and constitutional values and that people had to see this discussion of gun ownership, the second amendment within that broader context, governor. >> thank you katherine. >> thank you for having me. >> to be honest with you. i went to a couple of gun stores this week myself. it was interesting. the entire store was bear and shelves are just commeetly sold out. the stores were filled with people and i asked the people what is going on here? they say people are buying what they would not have bought. anything on the shelf because the government might restrict it. in an attempt to try to curve the number of fire arms, that
12:28am
are in the public, this administration is creating a demand for fire arms and ammunition to the likes of which we never had in this country . these are the law-abiding people. i don't worry about law-abiding people having fire arm to protect familis and homes, i do mind the criminals able to out fire power all of the law-abiding people . coming up. texas senator ted cruz calling the president drunk with power. you will hear my reaction and other quotes of the week. stay with us.
12:29am
12:30am
12:31am
12:32am
for all of the headlines, go to fox news.com. >> please join us tomorrow night for a live edition of huckabee. we'll have newt gingrich and avila king. the niece of martin luther king jr.. the criticism of the president's executive orders on gun control produced
12:33am
notable crote quotable . this is texas freshman senator ted cruz. >> this is it a president who i think who has drunk the koolaid and feeling high on his own power x. he is pushing on every front. on guns, i think it is sad to see the president of the united states exploiting the murder of children and using t to push his own extreme anti-gun agenda. >> one thing for certain, this president has created as distinct a line between the congress and the administration . the executive branches as i ever have seen. it doesn't help to govern when instead of working with that other branch of government, that you have to work with to pass manage that you make emnitty between the twompt what the senator was saying about the gun issue, it is the
12:34am
over all issue of cooperation with the congress and constitution clearly spells out the executive branch can't and shouldn't and not intended to act uniscrersally alone. the genius of the government is that there are check bances and no one branch can overrule and overrun the other two . the president is faced criticism for his working relationship or lackk thereof with the members of congress. earlier this week, the subject caused an interesting exchange between press secretary jay carny and cnn jessica. >> i know you cahafe at the president is not very fond of work going up there and being co-factor. >> there is a such a long history of presidents going up there. >> well, oh, say they have people. >> i think that is a television program.
12:35am
go ahead. over our heads. >> west wing you know. anyway, go ahead. some may wonder if the media might be turnog the obama administration . snorks not a chance. where else are they going to go? the media may get testy with the president in his second term. they are beginning to believe at times there is not the transparency and we were all promised. but if you think that the main streamm media is suddenlyy become honest and objective critic of this administration, then please contact me. i have magnificent ocean front property in missouri i would love to sell you. the president is anything to be enaugusterated for second term. his motorcade will include one
12:36am
limo with a license play. taxation without representation . the slogan was endorsed and appear on all of the presidential. that is according to a white house statement. this demonstrates the president's commitment of full representation of the people of the district of columbia and his willingness to fight for fighting rights and hom rule and voting for the district. it goes back to the creation of the district of columbia, the seat of our government. it is an issue that if we want to discuss we should and it should be discussed with congress and not slogans and with license plates. it seems appropriate if the president wants to put a license plate on the presidential that said "god bless america" or presidential seal that's fine. but this is a very highly charge quite frankly partisan
12:37am
political issue. i am not sure it is appropriate to use the opportunity of representing all of the citizens for a narr hoe only focused political agenda and put it on the front of the presidential vehicles. if the president wants to be fair about this, maybe every other month he could alternate license plates to put on the presidential vehicles if he wants to push the agenda of dc becoming its own state. we'll do that this month starting tuesday january 22nd it would be a great time to put on a different license plate one that many states have adopt one that my home state of arkansas adopted it is called choose life license plate. mr. president i would wish rather than push for the autonomy of dc push for the autonomy of every single person including the unborn
12:38am
that we acknowledge tuesday never seeing the light of day. choose life mr. president. >> c up. what can individual states do to combat regulations that are putting a a a a a
12:39am
12:40am
12:41am
heart mike huckabee show details at mikehuckabee.com. >> while the president used executive orders. what can states do to fight regulations from being forced on them? joining me from virginia is kim kutanela . author of the book last line of defense. >> good to be with you. >> last line of defense may be in the state level. >> that is thethesis of the
12:42am
book we have writ yen comes out on february 12th, next month. we are living with it, with the obama administration and we have another four years to go now . what we have done, successfully in some cases and not in others to fight back is to take them to court. when the environmental protection agency over steps its legal boundaries we sue them and we recently won a case of the epa that is employment prevention agency because they are so good at that. they are very good at that and our co-plaintiff was a democratic board of supervisor, biggest county of virginia where i grew up. we saved the taxpayer in fairfax county $250 million and our state department of transportation another 70 million. it was enormous win and it was
12:43am
an experiment by the epa, where we said and fairfax county said they are breaking the law. they said it is another way of doing what we are doing for 40 years and the court agreed with us. one of the great things about winning the federalism wins. when virginia winnings, everybody wins and now the other cases like this are all in missouri, and my first phone call to my colleague. democratic attorney general chris coster and said happy new year and he said happy new year . i said no, no. really happy new year and let me tell you why . he was excited to hear that outcome. i talked to him two hours after the order came out. federalism is a fight for all of us and a defense of the constitution . one way if we believe in limited government especially the attorneys general can practice what we preach and unfortunely the administration
12:44am
is giving us a lot of opportunity to practice. >> you sometimes feel like you are having to engage the federal government in a battle to protect your ability to make decisions for the people of the common wealth of virginia? >> absolutely. that is absolutely a critical element. the health care case. we filed suit first in virge virge and it went through. it is two more years of rigamarole can and we lost that the law was left standing, but states got other options that hadn't existed before because of how the order was written. we won things in the case that give us choices at the state level. one big one is will we go along with their proposed expansion of medicaid, the welfare program that provides health care to the poor? that is hundreds of millions was dollars questioned just
12:45am
for virginia, forget adding in all of the other states . that gave us more control back and we got it by fighting back. your mother always told you fighting is not a good thing. but there is it a time and place for everything . the states are the last line of defense in a step to make the federal government retain characteristics of a limited government. >> there are two good reason to fight. one is constitutional. because you want to preserve the power that was originally in the constitution . the other is financial and fiscal survival for states like virginia. you mentioned the epa case . what would that have cost virginia if they prevailed >> they were trying to regulate the storm water in the same way they would regulate nitrogen and sludge .
12:46am
this was under the clean water act. what we are trying to keep clean is water and yet they were regulating in the same manner as a polullant and because of the financial impact, your point number two. democratic board of supervisors joined us. financially they didn't feel they had a choice. dollars are a big deal. we rather keep them in our pocket than give them to government. what we would have to do is tear down peopla houses and tear down their businesses and take them away . plant grass so the water wouldn't flow in the aqua tank and have retainer homes it is people's homes and businesses and spend the money on to kick them out . thos what it looks like in the real world when this kind of federal overreach is actually implemented in your neighborhood and in your back
12:47am
yard. >> ken cuccneli. thank you for being here. >> get the book. last line of defense . i can certainly empathize with what he and other states are going through. every year i was a governor, one of my experiences was. every time we turned around we had to fight the federal government. it is not just democratic administration . they want to bring more power to washington and you are taking away from the people who live in their own communities. i believe the best is local government because it is closest to the people being governed and they know better what they need than someone who hasn't a clue of what and how and where they live. that's what our founders had in mind and we need to fight to protect it. >> a man who gives new meaning to a term of drawing a line in
12:48am
the sand. they expand your . joe castillio joins us next. you are not going to want to miss this. [applause]
